#DUBLIN HOLIDAY WORLD SHOW - Following Belfast's hosting of the annual travel event, the Dublin Holiday World Show starts this weekend (Friday 27th to Sunday 29th January) at the RDS Simmonscourt Pavillon in Ballsbridge.

Like its northern counterpart the Dublin Holiday World Show in association with The Sunday Times incorporates Ireland's biggest Caravan & Motorhome Show and the Over 55' Holiday Show.

With 60 countries, some 1,000 travel and tourism professionals will be ready to give advice and detailed, expert information including those representing ferry and cruise ship operators (see LIST).

Also at the show will be the free Expert Travel Clinics hosted by the renowned travel journalist Eoghan Corry who will be accompanied by leading industry experts giving talks, and answering visitors questions on topics such as cruises, travel in the Far East, African holidays, sports trips and holidays, adventure travel, Caribbean holidays and honeymoons, the US Deep South experience, as well as Home Holidays.

President of the Irish Travel Agents Association, Pat Dawson said: "The Irish holiday market is on a very sound footing. We in the ITAA see recession as an opportunity".

"Prices right now are cheaper than ever before and the exhibitors at Holiday World Show 2012 reflect what is happening in the industry, and you will get extraordinarily good value at the show."

#HOLIDAY WORLD SHOW -The Belfast Telegraph Holiday World Show will be officially opened by actress and comedian Crissy Rock of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here' fame, where she is to 'check in' at the city's King's Hall, this Friday.

The three day show (20th -22nd January) which ends on the Sunday, is Northern Ireland's biggest annual public showcase of travel, tourism and hospitality will offer an array of holiday destinations. Around 30,000 visitors are expected to the show during the weekend.

It will also be the show's 20th anniversary, commenting on the milestone, organiser Edmund Hourican said: "In 2012 we'll be celebrating 20 years of Holiday World Belfast. While much has changed during that time, the event still provides would-be travellers with a hassle-free opportunity to find out about and compare destinations, airlines, travel agencies - and their prices.

"Today's savvy travellers understand that 'best value' doesn't necessarily mean 'cheapest'. Rather, they are looking to find the products and services that best match their requirements. While visitors to Holiday World Belfast are typically prepared to invest in holidays – often heavily - they do want reassurance that they are making the right choices and getting the best deal. The fact that Holiday World is packed with special offers and discounts is a welcome extra bonus!"

Following the popularity of last year's launch by Oasis Travel of the Cruise Pavilion, this part of the show is also to return in 2012, bringing the biggest names in cruising and will include the successful series of cruise lectures suited to both the experienced 'cruiser' and those completely new to this style of holiday.

In addition this year will feature an all new event-within-an-event Over 55s Holiday Show, adding an important new focus to Holiday World Belfast. To read more details of the show, exhibitors including ferry and cruise operators, and for opening times and admission prices click HERE.

Following the Belfast show, it will be the turn of Dublin to host the Holiday World Show in association  with The Sunday Times which opens on the following weekend (Friday 27th-Sunday 29th January) in the RDS Simmonscourt Pavillon, Ballsbridge.

Like the Belfast show there will be an Over 55's Holiday Show plus the Caravan & Motorhome Show. For further details of the show  they can be viewed HERE.
